I live in Tokyo, a concrete jungle par excellence, if very polite about it. One day as I was standing looking out of the window...and saw hundreds of acres of unused flat roof space. It got me to thinking. Walk through any neighborhood in Tokyo and you'll see flower pots on every doorstep...but on the roofs nothing...So what we're proposing to do is make rooftop ecologies i.e plants, animals, fungi, algae and bacteria on rooftops...We're kind of new to this, though we have mentors from all over, but any helpful hints, suggestions, crazy ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Have suggestions? Post them here.
